Rfv-sense: A protective sleeveless garment worn over outer clothing. Not quite sure what this is getting at, which isn't covered by the other senses. (Unless it's a form of sense 1, which I just added?) Ƿidsiþ 15:58, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps a reference to life vest (redirects to life jacket). Pingku 17:24, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
The contributor could have been looking for a sense that would be suitable for ballistic vest, bulletproof vest, w:Life vest, w:Safety vest, w:Flannel vest, etc. As defined it still wouldn't encompass w:Fishing vest, ranger vest, photographer's vest, w:Scrimmage vest, which are not protective.

I have added a sense intended to render this rfv-sense moot. Have I succeeded? DCDuring TALK 16:37, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I reckon. Ƿidsiþ 16:46, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
If you think we should only have the multiword terms or that the wording is inadequate, you might well be right. DCDuring TALK 17:28, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. Thanks for your work, DCDuring. —RuakhTALK 20:35, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

By the way, this isn't only in multiword terms — it's not hard to find hits on b.g.c. where a life-vest or bulletproof vest or blaze orange vest (what hunters wear) or the like is referred to as simply a "vest". —RuakhTALK 20:52, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
